We’re pleased to announce that CaPrice Crowe will receive this year’s George Kressin Intern of the Year Award!
CaPrice started her internship in January while earning her Human Services degree at Metropolitan State University. She spent her time supporting parents who come to visit their children at our centers. For the majority of parents we work with, this is the only opportunity they have to spend time playing and bonding with their children.
Of her time interning at FamilyWise, CaPrice says:
“I was able to hit the ground running in working with the community. FamilyWise gave me first-hand experience at how to build partnerships to help achieve your goals. When I first started my journey in the field, I wanted to work with children. I soon found that you can only help a child by helping the family unit as a whole.”
Join us at our Fall Fundraiser on November 5, 5:30-7:30pm at Surly Brewing Co. This is a free fundraising event with food, music, beer, cash bar, games and a live auction. Music provided by rockin’ lawyer band Noisy Withdrawal of sponsor Fredrikson & Byron. Register Here
